My health or lack of it is dictating that I must take a break for a little while. To continue to plow on with Cherry Blossom Tattoo is overwhelming, to give it up is unthinkable. I see darkness to the horizon and beyond, all feels so desolate, I am engulfed. The two sides of me are fighting and each are losing their own battle, I am suffering and tears prickle at my eyes.
Sadly I have had to relinquish control and take a break from all this. I need time to regain calm, to find my focus and to find my energy for the journey once more. I do love this path of communication and expression through photography but my health must come first and my brain is right now frazzled (a technical term I am sure).
I shall still do the Sweet Etsy interviews and chat about Simon's adventures but forgive me as for a week or 2 I don't post new works or talk about my new ideas. I just need a little head piece. I'll be fine and dandy but it is a hazard of every person who is trying to make art and maybe self sustain the process - there simply isn't the money out there at the moment and I feel I am fighting the waves in the sea with my bare hands; exhausted, numb and confused.
Rest can be the hardest gift we can bestow upon ourselves, taking ourselves out of the loop for a short while to recharge, it feels like failure. But it is what I must do. Wish me well. I shall return rejuvenated xxxx
